This course is the second in our series of how to get that dream job or get on to that dream course, and it’s designed to help you once you’ve made it through to the all important interview. Being offered an interview for a job or course is an extremely positive but also scary prospect. So we put together a set of tools to help you prepare and perform at your very best.
Skip to 0 minutes and 49 seconds We’ll show you how to research the organisation to arm you with as much information as possible to show that you’re right for the role. We will show you what to wear and what not to wear, and we’ll go through some common interview questions and tips on how to best answer them. We’ll have insights from your employers from a range of different industries, along with admissions tutors, giving their tips on what they look for in an interview candidate, and what makes the best and the worst impression on them. We’ll also give instructions on dealing with different types of interviews, from telephone interviews, to video interviews, and show you how to give painless presentations.
